WHAT MEDIA SAYS ABOUT US

The national capital region including Delhi, Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar is all set for an expansion. Two new townships â?? Hapur and Garhmukteshwar will soon become part of this region. Garhmukteshwar, which is considered a good alternative to Hardwar as a centre of pilgrimage, is being promoted as a tourist spot. It will be handed over to the Hapur Pilkhuwa Development Authority (HPDA) for a planned development.

On the basis Jana-Shrutis, it has been found that Hapur was founded by Raja Harishchandra Another Lok-shruti says that Hapur was founded by Daron Ke Sardar, Hardatta, in 983. After this Hapur was called Haripur. It is also said that Hapur came from the word 'Hapar' which means garden. In 19th century a French Army chief appointed by 'Pairaan' started the custom of giving away grants to retired soldiers.

Earlier, Garhmukteshwarâ??s development was regulated by the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) which has now agreed to hand over the areaâ??s regulation to the HPDA.

The work on doubling the width of the 40-km long road from Hapur to Garhmukteshwar that has been handed over to the state bridge corporation by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) started on Wednesday.

With a toll expressway from Ghaziabad to Hapur already in place, the widening will further cut down the travel time from Ghaziabad to Garhmukteshwar from over 90 minutes to less than an hour. The state tourism department has already sanctioned Rs 2.56 crore for building a bathing platform by the Ganges at Garmukteshwar.

On the Ghaziabad-Roorkee route, a separate 121-km road is also planned for Kavarias, whose increasing numbers now regularly jam Hardwar-Delhi traffic, particularly at the time when devotees return from Hardwar. The proposal has already been submitted to the National Bank for Agricultural and Rural Development (NABARD).
